Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, - APR 27, 2013
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear nutty brown with a beige head. Odd, sweet artificial woody booze aroma. Thin body, doesnt appear 7% at all. Some burned caramel and extremely artificial Cognac flavours. 270413

Best possible aroma. Would febreze all over. However, afterwards it all goes downhill: pretty quick and sour finish that is only tolerable through multiple sniffs of that incredible odor. Also kinda flat, which I think is to be expected from this kind of beer.

Pours dark brown with a small white top. Aroma is bubble gum, sweet caramel and light roast. Taste is very carbonated, sickly sweet, light roast and still bubble gum. Where the hell is that coming from? Is that the cognac?

Produit trs intressant. Armes sublimes de cognac et fruits rouges. Faible mousse qui disparat rapidement. Robe noire. En bouche, a manque un peu dquilibre et aurait probablement avantage tre vieilli. Fruits rouges, cognac, un peu damertume/brl. Trs bon.

Speedy_Charly (214) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 8, 2015
Bouteille de 500ml au March des Brasseurs. Liquide brun opaque avec des reflets rubis fonc. Mousse beige grosses bulles qui rduit rapidement un mince filet en laissant pas mal de dentelle. Nez de malt et sucre torrfi sur des note fruites et un lger fond de cognac. Elle est moyenne de corps, et peu carbonate. Au got cest caramel brul et fruits noirs; on ne dcouvre le cognac qu la toute fin alors que la bouche sassche. Je laurais prfr un peu plus alcool/cognac et moins caramel, mais cest quand-mme un des bons produits du Grimoire.

jaghana (5771) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle 50cl, an amber brown beer with medium head. Nose is on caramel and yes cognac notes. Aroma is on dry burnt caramel, cognac notes, light barrel touch at the finish. Bitter and astringent notes, light roasted notes, very less complex than expected.

Bouteille achete Au Grain D?Orge - Couleur brun rubis avec une tonne mousse beige qui disparat assez vite pour ne laisser qu?un petit cole - Au nez une forte prsence de cognac qui prend le pas sur le caramel, biscuit, fruits rouge - En bouche c?est tout de suite moin bien, le cognac est toujours prsent, la bire est trs aqueuse et devient acide la fin, un peu vineuse, la carbonation est plate et le final trs court, dcevant

Beardbeerman (341) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
500ml bottle served in a snifter around 14 degrees. Pours a nice opaque black robe letting shine some dark maple highlights. I got about a finger of frothy/creamy off-white head and I could easily spot some big carbs. The nose is liquor and cherries with not so much presence of the hops or yeasts. On the tongue, this beer is copious liquor with a sweet cherry / vanilla character. Some spices come through, nutmeg perhaps, but its subtle. The brew feels too aqueous and lacks body to accompagny such a strong liquorish flavour. Good, but not great. Cheers!

Spab (3598) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
500 ml bottle from Drummondville Metro. Pours a clear chestnut brown with tiny light tan head. Aroma is caramel, fruit and an odd spicy note that must be the cognac. Flavour is rather medicinal with caramel, fruit and a pronounced sourness. Lifeless body. Not my cup of tea.

Halleluja ! Premire bire de la brasserie que je gote qui na pas lair contamine ! Du coup, elle est nettement moins degueu que les autres. Brune avec des reflets rubis, belle mousse beige. Nez de caramel, rhum, cognac. Bouche sur le toffee, le cognac et lalcool. Elle nest pas trs subtile, lalcool semble trop prsent (bien que titre 7%) mais bon elle est trs buvable (et cest dj pas si mal ...)
